Pip pip, ladies and lords! I'm in England, getting ready for TAM London! That starts tomorrow, though there are some festivities tonight (George Hrab in concert!). My hotel charges as much for internet as my last hotel room in the States cost in total, so I'm sitting in a cafe across from my hotel to use their wifi, and drinking so much espresso to make up for it that I might fly home without an airplane.
I have already had a fun adventure or two, and will be blogging about all this and uploading photos as I can. I've been told the wireless at the Mermaid Centre (the venue for TAML) is good, so I'll be live tweeting the whole thing as I can as well.
And if you're in the UK/London area, there are still tickets available. Go to the TAM London site and come see us!
